Special Issue "Micro/Nano Fluidics and Bio-MEMS"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 May 2016)
Cells play significant roles in our day-to-day life. However, the behaviors of cells or cells with the environment, with their organelles and their intracellular physical/biochemical/biological effects, are still unknown. Micro/Nanofluidic and Bio-MEMS devices are capable to manipulate and detect bio-samples, reagents, or biomolecules at micro/nano scales and well-fulfill the requirements for cellular analysis. These devices are not only useful to simulate physiological environment of cell, cellular transport mechanisms, cell proliferation, differentiation, neural network coordination, and cardiomyocytes synchronization, but it can also easily control the biochemical, physical, and mechanical parameters of cells.
This Special Issue will invite manuscripts conducting research on the integration of micro/nanofluidics and Bio-MEMS devices dealing with cell manipulation, injection, separation, lysis, and cell dynamics, as well as various detection schemes. The role of cellular analysis in system biology, proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, and their application in bioprocess engineering, future challenge, advantages, and limitations are also welcome to be included in the manuscripts.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
